A Diagnostic Design for Individualized Field and Campus Internship.
Ivy, W. Fred; Griffin, Richard A.
A year long practicum for preparation of learning disability teachers is described. The first of two components provides a field based internship intended to give the student an opportunity to apply skills learned in coursework. Among 20 skills emphasized in the field based component are classroom organizational skills; communication with students, parents, teachers, and other school personnel; time management skills; systematic observation of students to develop indepth learning/behavioral profiles; and analysis of administrative challenges. The second half of the practicum is campus based and is designed to allow the student to extend his/her knowledge. The 20 skills emphasized in the campus based experience include constructing conceptualizations concerning the field of learning disabilities, assessing educational instruments or methods, critiquing relevant special education articles, roleplaying interview situations, making presentations about a pioneer in the field of learning disability, and completing a self evaluation. A sample student competency profile is included. (CL)
